Chapter: Children’s late mastery of marked interpretations

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21789


This chapter investigates children’s interpretation of indefinite noun phrases in Dutch in different positions in the sentence.
In the domain of word order variation, several studies on
the acquisition of object scrambling show that children are capable of producing scrambled structures already at a young age as well.
